Ex Libris Museum
There's nothing like weird art to cleanse the mental palette, I always say.
This Japanese site I stumbled upon appears to be about the art of the "ex libris" (meaning "from the library of") sticker that well-to-do folks used to put in all their books. I'm guessing that the "Bayros room" holds the work of an early 20th century illustrator named Bayros who made a name for himself creating these items for his clients, and that the "Gallery" link constitutes a (probably commissioned) mini-revival of the form by contemporary (and mostly Russian) artists. I dunno, you tell me...
